  • Windies batting fails in loss to India

    first_imgKOLKATA, India, CMC:West Indies’ batting failed miserably as they slumped to a 45-run defeat to hosts India in their opening official warm-up match of the Twenty20 World Cup at Eden Gardens here yesterday.Chasing a challenging 186 for victory, only opener Chris Gayle was good enough to reach the 20s as the Caribbean side were bundled out for 140 in the final over.The left-handed Gayle got exactly 20 from 11 balls, and fellow Jamaican AndrÈ Russell was the next best scorer with 19 from 13 deliveries.West Indies’ run chase was ruined by left-arm spinners Pawan Negi (2-15) and Ravindra Jadeja (2-26), along with seamers Hardik Pandya (2-25) and Mohammed Shami (2-30), all of whom took two wickets each.India had earlier tallied 185 for six from their 20 overs, with opener Rohit Sharma narrowly missing out on three figures with an unbeaten 98.Left-hander Yuvraj Singh chipped in with 31, while opener Shikhar Dhawan got 21.Fast bowler Jerome Taylor (2-26) and left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn (2-30) were the best bowlers on show for West Indies.Rohit put on 32 off 29 balls for the first wicket with Dhawan and posted a further 24 for the second wicket with Ajinkya Rahane, who made seven.However, Benn bowled the left-handed Dhawan in the fifth over and had Rahane stumped in the ninth, to leave India on 56 for two.Rohit then dominated the innings in an 89-run, third-wicket stand with Yuvraj, facing 57 deliveries and counting nine fours and seven sixes.In reply, Gayle and Johnson Charles (18) gave West Indies a robust start, gathering 26 from the first two overs. They had put on 36 off just 21 deliveries when Gayle was bowled by Jasprit Bumrah after striking three fours and a six.Charles, who counted two fours off 13 balls, followed in the next over to a catch at the wicket off Mohammed Shami and Denesh Ramdin, promoted to number four, perished for six at 59 for three at the end of the eighth over.Marlon Samuels, who made 17, and Dwayne Bravo, 13, then carried West Indies to 72 without further loss and seemed to be guiding the side out of trouble.But Samuels was bowled by Jadeja at the start of the 12th over, and with just six runs added in the next over, Bravo also followed as West Indies lost their last seven wickets in quick time for 68 runs.last_img read more

  • Fossil Whale Already Had Echolocation

    first_img(Visited 28 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Once again, a complex trait appears fully formed and functional in the fossil record.Science Now, PhysOrg and Live Science are all telling the same story: echolocation is apparent in a fossil whale thought to be 28 million years old.  The skull of the toothed whale (drawn by an artist to resemble a dolphin or young beluga), Cotylocara has sinus cavities consistent with the location of sonar equipment in modern whales.To make this evolutionary, Live Science explains that it “pushes back the origins of the ability, called echolocation, to at least 32 million years ago“.  The spokesman adds, “It suggest echolocation evolved very, very early in the history of the group that involved toothed whales.” The words transition, link, and primitive are all absent from all three articles, indicating no precursors to this sonar-ous whale are known.It’s not enough to have a sonar organ.  Science Now asks an obvious question: “But even if Cotylocara made those sounds, could it have heard them?”  Unfortunately, the ear bones of the skull are not preserved well enough to tell.  The question points out, though, that sonar must originate as a system, with both transponder and receiver functioning, to be useful—to say nothing of the brain processing to be able to use the information.See also the 11/04/13 entry about how sonar in bats and whales is “surprisingly similar” even though the two mammals must have gained echolocation independently.  See the 6/03/10 story about how all the whales’ distinctive features would have had to evolve “in the blink of an eye.”  Back in 9/05/07, biologists were clueless about how sonar “developed” in whales, calling it a “deep question of evolution.”So what do they know?  A fossil whale probably had working sonar.  That’s it.  Do they know it was 28 million years old?  No.  Do they know sonar evolved 32 million years ago?  No.  Do they have a sequence from primitive to complex?  No.  Do they know how both the infrasound-producing organ and the ears evolved together as a system?  No.  Do they know how random mutations could produce any integrated system?  No.  Do they know anything about the evolution of whale sonar?  No.  Are they speaking off the top of their heads?  Yes.  Why?  Because everybody knows, “Evolution is a FACT!”last_img read more

  • Get casual and celebrate our differences

    first_imgCasual Day ambassadors Benedictor Mokoena (front) and Adri Visser (back) with Alma School learner Angelique Bezuidenhout. Alma School is a school for learners with disabilities in Pretoria and one of the largest schools in the country catering to needs of disabled learners.As Disability Rights Awareness Month draws to a close, Casual Day nears the conclusion of its campaign for the year. But the work is not over, and the organisation is now setting its sights on launching its National Schools Programme for 2016.Schools across the country are encouraged to increase their involvement in the campaign by pairing up with mainstream schools in their area and pledge their support of the 2016 Casual Day campaign.Casual Day project leader Vanessa du Plessis has asked pupils, parents and teachers to make Casual Day one of the stand-out events on their calendars in 2016.Disability Rights Awareness Month began on 3 November and will run until 3 December. 3 December   is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities as well as South Africa’s National Disability Rights Awareness Day.“Disability Rights Awareness Month provides South Africa with an opportunity to inspire hope and confidence in the ability of communities and the state machinery to work together in addressing the common challenges facing persons with disabilities and society in general,” explained Du Plessis.She also urged governmental bodies to ensure all public and private schools across the country made it a point to celebrate Casual Day, stating that “schools are a significant aspect of government and schools are where values and morals are inculcated”.Tshilidzini Special School in Limpopo province is the top performer in the country in raising funds for persons with disabilities.CASUAL DAYEstablished in 1995, Casual Day is the flagship project of the National Council for Persons with Physical Disabilities in South Africa (NCPPDSA).Each year, the project invites all South Africans to dress differently and wear the specially designed Casual Day sticker on an allocated day (this year’s Casual Day took place on Friday, 4 September) in exchange for a R10 donation that goes towards supporting the many organisations relying on the project.Since its creation, Casual Day has grown into one of the country’s leading fundraisers in support of disability awareness and creating a fully accessible and inclusive society for all.With the help of the general public as well as a number of corporate sponsors, Casual Day had contributed more than R222-million to the funding of organisations providing education, assistive devices, shelter and employment to the nearly 15% of the population who had disabilities, Du Plessis said.The total sum of money raised this year will be announced in February 2016.“It is important to note that government funding for NGOs working in the sector is inadequate – and that most of them survive on private donations, which means Casual Day is vital to these services,” she said, highlighting the significance of the project in meeting the needs of people who had disabilities.TIMELY INTERVENTIONA series of studies, said the Casual Day organisers, conducted by the NCPPDSA, Mpumalanga’s Department of Social Development, Statistics South Africa and Casual Day participant Disabled Children’s Action Group (DICAG) revealed the following:Only 42% of the children with disabilities identified in Mpumalanga’s Ehlanzeni, Nkangala and Gert Sibande districts were receiving rehabilitation. (Mpumalanga’s Department of Social Development)Only 33% of these children had the assistive devices they required. (Mpumalanga’s Department of Social Development)Around 59% of these children reported that their caregivers did not know how to apply for an assistive device. (Mpumalanga’s Department of Social Development)Children with disabilities were substantially less likely to attend school than their non-disabled peers. (NCPPDSA)Drop-out rates among children with disabilities that did attend school were significantly higher than those of their peers who are not disabled. (NCPPDSA)There were significant gaps in the child justice system in dealing with cases that involved children with disabilities for a number of reasons, such as witnesses being incompetent because of a break-down in communication. (DICAG)“These figures are shocking and saddening,” said Du Plessis, “but Casual Day brings a huge ray of hope, because the awareness campaign around Casual Day puts a public focus on the needs of persons with disabilities.“We do not only focus on children, but provide funding to the entire age spectrum. For example, Alzheimer’s South Africa raises funds for its research and awareness campaigns through Casual Day.”Through its holistic approach, the Casual Day campaign supports a wide range of beneficiaries including the National Council for Persons with Physical Disabilities in South Africa, the Deaf Federation of South Africa and the South African Disability Alliance.By continuously raising awareness of the plight of people with disabilities, Casual Day has made strides in transforming our society into one that recognises the positive contributions made by people with disabilities to the country.last_img read more

  • It Happened To Me: My Small Business Was Hacked!

    first_imgWhat Nobody Teaches You About Getting Your Star… rieva lesonsky Tags:#hack#security#small business Last September, shortly after the attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, a company tweeted me that they were going to make our site, SmallBizDaily.com, their “small business resource of the day.” My joy was short-lived when the next morning they tweeted that my site had been hacked.I quickly checked (it was still early morning on the West Coast, where we’re located) and sure enough, instead of the usual array of small-business content I was greeted by an unfamiliar image of a Middle Eastern-looking man, Arabic lettering and a video about the glories of Allah. I blinked, gulped more caffeine and reloaded the page. No luck — the image was still there. “We’ve been hacked,” I muttered, still not believing what I was seeing.Weeks Of Agony – Months Of WorkThen followed two weeks of agony and struggle as our Web-hosting company worked to deal with the situation, while also helping their many other small-business clients who had been hacked as well.It seems someone had placed malicious code on our site that lay dormant for months — and only popped up that morning. “It was like cancer,” recalls my business partner, who dealt with the situation. “To make sure [the code] was really gone, we had to clean out all of the files we had loaded since the initial hack.”Months of work was wiped out — and every time we thought it was fixed, the hack popped up again. I was repeatedly embarrassed; it seemed every time I would tell someone (including the company that originally told me about the hack) the site was fine, within minutes the hack would reappear. We then had to delete and reload more files, more times than I care to remember.We Were Lucky!Believe it or not, my company was one of the lucky ones. David Maman, founder and CTO of database security company GreenSQL, said our hack was the “old-fashioned” kind.“Five or 10 years ago, the purpose of hacking was defacement,” explained Maman, an international expert in computer security who has founded seven tech companies. “It was very obvious when you were hacked — a friend would call and say ‘Hey, what’s going on with your website?’ Today, with a successful SQL injection hack, there will be no sign that someone has retrieved your entire database.”How can you be hacked without knowing it? If it can happen to Sony and LinkedIn, he said, it can certainly happen to your small business.Tech Startups Especially VulnerableIronically, tech startups — with their low budgets, long hours and cocky techies coding day and night on their personal laptops and mobile devices — may actually be more vulnerable to hacks than less tech-oriented businesses.Changes in the nature of business have affected how hackers operate, said Maman, “Everything is about online today, and almost every [business] is providing some type of online service or app. As a result, the line between internal and external data is blurred, and all of your information is exposed.”You might think you have nothing to worry about if you aren’t selling products or collecting card data online. Think again, he says, who explains that most hack attacks today are completely automated. “They don’t even know who you are — they just check websites for vulnerabilities, and if they find them, they will attack.”In fact, ecommerce companies or other businesses that collect customer credit and payment data may be less at risk of hacking because they must be PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant. “These regulations are actually beneficial,” said Maman.What if, like so many small business owners, you simply provide a free app or service? All you’re collecting from customers is their registration information, which could be as simple as their name and email — so what do you care if it’s compromised?“Data is the new currency,” he warned — and that includes any type of data, not just financial information.Maman explained that hackers may manipulate customer data to inject malicious code that serves up competitors’ information instead of your own, penetrates the customer’s computer, or worse.“It’s not about losing information — which may not be worth that much — but about harming your customers, hurting your brand and destroying your reputation.”If a customer’s computer gets infected after using your service, are they likely to return? Worst of all, you won’t even know your business has been hacked until it slowly withers and dies as customers fade away.What To Do If It Happens To You?“If in the past it was a big taboo to let customers know that you’ve been hacked, today it’s not,” he said, citing LinkedIn as an example. “Letting your customers know won’t hurt you — it will show that you’re being responsible.”Ask them to change their passwords on your site and on any other sites where they use the same password. Apologize; then explain what measures you will take to make sure the hack won’t happen again.Beef Up Your DefenseThose measures should include three key steps:1. Secure your coding. “Most of the basic attacks, and even some of the more advanced ones, are due to unprofessional coding,” said Maman. “There’s a lot of information online about how to secure coding.” Educate yourself and take the steps.2. Harden your computers at the operating-system level, applications level, server level, network-access level and even the individual customer level. Hardening essentially means eliminating unnecessary software, restricting access and otherwise blocking everything that is not essential. “Hardening documentation can be found online,” he said.3. Use free and open-source software. Security doesn’t have to cost a lot for a small business. “ModSecurity is a free, open-source Web application firewall,” said Maman. “GreenSQL Express is our free database firewall.”Most of all, pay attention to security. Without the money for a dedicated IT security staffer, your team needs to be even more responsible than big-company employees about what’s running on their devices.Don’t worry; security doesn’t have to be a business killer.“People think of IT security as a hassle, a lot of work and a waste of time,” he said. “That’s not the case. Just one day’s work can increase your security level 100%.”Image courtesy of Shutterstock.
